it's composition according to European Directive 67/548/EEC.
us
Primary Routes of Exposure : inhalation , skin , eye
Potential Health Effects:
ACUTE (short term) : Fiber glass continuous filament is a mechanical irritant. Breathing dusts and
st
fibers may cause temporary irritation of the mouth, nose and throat. Skin contact with dusts
and fibers may cause itching and temporary irritation. Eye contact with dusts and fibers may

Section 11: Toxicological Information (Continued)


Continuous Filament Glass Fiber:The International Agency for Research on
Cancer ( IARC ) categorized Continuous Filament Glass Fiber as Not Classifiable as
to Carcinogenicity to Humans (Group 3) in 1987 and affirmed this decision again in
October, 2001 , based on inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and
inadequate or limited evidence in experimental animals.

id
The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists ( ACGIH ) A4
classification, Not Classifiable as a Human Carcinogen, for respirable continuous

o.
filament glass fibers is based on inadequate data in terms of its carcinogenicity in
humans and/or animals.

.c
Products that are chopped, crushed or severely mechanically processed during
manufacture or use may contain a very small amount of respirable glass fiber -like
fragments. us
NIOSH defines "respirable fibers" as greater than 5 microns in length and less
than 3 microns in diameter with an aspect ratio of 5:1 (length-to-width ratio).
For respirable continuous filament glass fiber, a TLV-TWA of 1 fiber/cc was
st
adopted to protect workers against mechanical irritation. The TLV-TWA of 5
mg/m3 was adopted for non-respirable glass filament fiber, measured as
inhalable dust, to prevent mechanical irritation of the upper respiratory tract.
